Pine Cone Garland


What You’ll Need:
Pine Cones
Ribbon
Screw Hooks
Hole Punch
Scissors

Instructions:

1. Begin by measuring your mantel or space that you’d like to hang your garland and cut your ribbon. Remember to leave extra for hanging. Once you've determined the length, space your pine cones out as you like on a flat surface. The pine cones I used were fairly large so I kept about 4 inches between each one. On the back of the ribbon discreetly mark where each pine cone will go, then punch a hole with a small craft punch. 

2. Once you know how many pine cones you’ll need, screw in one screw hook into the top of each pine cone. This takes a little practice and you may need a little elbow grease but once you get the hang of it it goes pretty quickly.

3. Poke each hook through the hole you've made in the ribbon and hang! Easy as pie and something that will last for seasons to come!



Eco-Tip:  Use a paper shredder to shred non recyclable paper and use the shredding as packing material for mailing or for moving.  And remember, Mylar Balloons are never okay for the environment.  For this and other tips on going green visit, The Earth and Me Go Green.
